    Hi all,
    I've recently decided to switch over from sholes/droidmod to bugless beast (ESE53).

    Here's what I've done:
    -Updated nandroid to .99.3b
    -Created a nandroid backup
    -Downloaded the bugless beast update.zip folder (using Google Chrome)
    -Extracted it into a folder called bb9 using 7zip
    -Wiped data, cache
    -Perform advance restore
    -I navigate to the bb9 folder within the /sdcard/nandroid folder
    ^When I click restore, I get the error: Nandroid exited with status 25

    After looking this up, it's a problem that occurs when the image folder is nested too far into the nandroid folder. However, I can seem to see why mine is running this error-- I have the bb folder in the /sdcard/nandroid/ folder. Inside the bb folder are two folders and one file: META-INF(folder), System(folder), and boot.img.

    Can anyone help me figure out the problem? It seems as if i've nested things properly, why would I still get this error?

    Thanks in advance!

    edit: I've tried doing this 3 times, with 3 different folder names, nothing has worked

    An update.zip is NOT a nandroid backup.

    Leave it as update.zip on the ROOT of your SD card.

    In recovery, select install, allow update.zip, and then install update.zip.

    This makes sense to me--but I'm coming from a non-2.1 rom and he suggests doing the nandroid backup method.

    Here are his instructions
    -Update & backup any files you wish to restore, this will wipe /data
    -Extract the files from the archive using WinRAR or a similar program
    -Place the extracted folder (the ROM) into the "nandroid" folder on your sdcard
    -Reboot into recovery mode (hold the power and "x" button at the same time)
    -Wipe data/factory reset (do this twice!)
    -Wipe cache partition (do this twice!)
    -Backup/Restore
    -Advanced Nandroid Restore
    -Choose backup (select the ROM)
    -Perform Restore
    -Enjoy!

    When he says extract the files is he not referring to the update.zip?

    No, do not extract the update.zip

    I think he didn't post the nandroid up, but it's available here:

    Index of /pete/ESE53/V0.9

    Or you can nandroid v.08 and update.zip to v.09, buuuut that would be pointless at this point. Lol.

    Who knows... maybe v0.8 will still be better, not enough time using v0.9 yet, plus its nice to have a good list of backups, that way if anything ever happens you can restore to any point in your phones history you want. I am thinking of flashing back to BB 0.7.6 just for kicks...

    I would suggest doing a nandroid backup to v 0.8 since it has been thoroughly tested and is very stable (remember to use titanium backup from the market to backup all your apps...after you flash tbe rom go back into the market to get titanium backup and reload your apps...use the batch operation which restores missing apps). After you've done this, you can always update.zip to v0.9 if you so choose.
